Graduating seniors at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) are following in the footsteps of Michael Kors, Isaac Mizrahi, Alexander Wang, and other top designers that chose to webcast their fall 2010 runway shows, allowing anyone with an Internet connection (and a slightly higher-res imagination) to glimpse their new collections at the same time as top editors and buyers. Clear your Monday evening, when for the first time in the history of FIT, the annual graduating students runway show will be streamed live here at around 7:30. It’s your chance to get a first look at the future of fashion as students present sportswear, special occasion, knitwear, intimate apparel, menswear, and children’s wear (always a crowd pleaser) designed for fall 2010. And be sure to check out the front row, where you’ll see the likes of Carolina Herrera scouting talent. Another futuristic FIT touch? The school is simulcasting the show in 3D to overflow crowds in its Haft Auditorium, so cross your fingers for lots of ruffles!
